1920's Lace Dress
I have attached pictures of a 1920's Robe de Style party dress. It is cream silk with cream lace and silk roses, velvet and silk leaves cascading down the front. It has ten snaps and two hooks/loops at the side. The dropped waist is piped and the skirt gathered to the piped waist. The bodice is lace and silk. I have stabilized the bodice lace with sheer netting and invisible thread. The bust is 17 (flat), waist is 16 (flat). There are small, attached panniers under the skirt to hold it out. I have tried to photograph them as best I could. The lace flounce on the skirt is 16 inches deep. This really is a lovely dress.
Thank you so much Karen for sharing photos of your collection!
